SuperDNA Sdn Bhd, a genetic testing company, launched the Ultimate DNA Test on Sept 6, 2022.
Ultimate DNA Test provides the first Personal Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) to the Malaysian public offering them an opportunity to learn about their bodies, the best options for specific health issues and thereby empowering them to make the best choices to live a healthy life.
This local privately held Direct to Consumer (DTC) Company aims to bring health and wellness measures closer to everyone.
SuperDNA utilises the world’s most comprehensive DNA sequencing technology, which conducts a full scan that analyses 100 per cent of the human DNA as compared to other genetic tests such as Genotyping Technology which only analyses 0.01 per cent of the DNA or the Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) technology which only looks into two per cent of the tested DNA.
SuperDNA Chief Scientific Officer Stefanie Chow said: “When choosing a genetic test, it is critical to find out what genetic information you will get, and which technology the genetic testing providers use.
“With the SuperDNA genetic test, our clients do not only get an analysis of 100 per cent of their DNA, but they also have access to a Genetic Counsellor, a Dietitian and a Nutritionist from SuperDNA at their disposal. SuperDNA is designed to provide ultimate service and support for anyone looking to make ideal choices to lead a healthier life.
